Moving into 2023, I am enthusiastic about the year IRT has ahead. Our IRT Scholars submitted their applications for graduate school, and we could not be more proud of them. We are grateful for the support of the IRT staff, external advisors, and IRT alums who aided and supported the process.
As our Scholars continue to navigate the admissions process with interviews and preview days, the IRT begins to open ours. Our alums continue to recognize prospective educators and to ensure we have the representation of future scholarship we need. Applications are open until March 1, so please share the application amongst your networks. If you would like to review the IRT application process or to share application resources, please visit our application page.

As we enter the new year, we remember the things we carry with us. For the last year, many of us have worn multiple hats, opening our hearts and homes to the unknown.
Here at the IRT, we find support in our community. Our scholars came to us with their hopes, vulnerabilities, and shared goals of educational transformation. It has not been easy as we all work together to work towards our ideals of socially just educational society.
I’m proud of the opportunity to connect with our alumni and share their stories in our program report. We are excited to continue to solicit and support our alumni through the development of our Alumni Committee. Now more than ever, our alumni play a crucial role in supporting our program. By informing us of your successes, challenges, and processes, we can better support our current scholars.
Throughout all the uncertainty, I am also grateful. Grateful to be in a community that works to support each other. Either through PPE distribution or easing nerves while waiting for admissions decisions, I am inspired by how you have shown up for each other.
Please apply to join the IRT Alumni Committee!
As the Graduate Student Representative to the IRT Advisory Board, I know that alumni support and the IRT network is full of robust and dynamic scholars and professionals across various fields. I believe we are actively pushing for more racially and socially just K-12, higher education, and professional spaces. With this, LaShawnda Brooks and I would like to launch the IRT Alumni Committee.
We would like to invite IRT alum to apply to join the Alumni Committee– a highly motivated and dynamic collaboration of IRT alumni who are committed to supporting, networking, and working with alumni, IRT staff, current IRT students and the Advisory Board. I hope the Alumni Committee can be a collaborative space to problem-solve and support IRT alumni.
Learn more and apply for the IRT Alumni Committee.
Applications are due Friday, February 19.
Renee Wilmot, IRT ’12/’17
